Journal publishers offer Table of Contents alert services that automatically send you an email when a new issue of a journal is published. To get started set up a free individual account at the publisher's website. Some publishers that have table of contents services are:
ASCE Library - Sign up for email alerts for table of contents from ASCE journals and publications.
ScienceDirect -Sign in with your ScienceDirect (free) credentials to save searches and create volume/issue alerts.
Wiley Online Library- Click on "Register for Alerts" to set up a free account.
SpringerLink - select table of contents alerts for journals or book series published by Springer.
Many engineering literature databases offer alert services that automatically send email notifications for new citations or table of contents that match a pre-determined search query. The names and the procedures for setting up these services vary among vendors, but they generally operate in the same way. You specify the search terms or the journal titles and the database automatically provides you with updated results via email. To get started you must register to set up an individual account with each database.
Note: some alert services will provide links to information that are restricted to UW faculty, students and staff. To access those links from off-campus, you will need to go through the Libraries proxy server using the bookmarklet or by proxying the URLs. See the Connect from Off-Campus page for more info.
Here is a list of alert services available through some the major databases available at the UW. There are many more - ask us if you have questions about an alert service.
